PROBERT, James - child - climbing boy
Can anyone identify this unfortunate boy who died on 26 March 1829. He was one of the children apprenticed to a chimney-sweep in the City of Hereford (unnamed in the newspaper report of the Inquest). The boy, 7 or 8 years of age, was overcome by the "deleterious gas" when going down the chimney. The very young thin boys whose job it was to go up & down the inside of the chimneys were known as climbing boys.
